SUBJECT: RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE MIAMI-DADE POLICE DEPARTMENT TO EXPEND FUNDS FROM THE SOUTH FLORIDA HIGH INTENSITY
DRUG TRAFFICKING AREA FEDERAL ASSET SHARING FORFEITURE FUND

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners approve the attached resolution authorizing the Miami-Dade Police Department to expend funds from the South Florida High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Federal Asset Sharing Forfeiture Fund. The South Florida High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area secures funding as a result of joint agency investigations. The South Florida High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area shares these funds with member agencies to support allowable expenses in conjunction with approved investigations.

Scope
The funding will be used countywide.

Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
There is no fiscal impact to the County.

Track Record/Monitor
The entity involved is the Miami-Dade Police Department Fiscal Administration Bureau. Gus Knoepffler, Chief Financial Officer, will track and monitor the agreement. In addition, expenditures will be fully reported in accordance with federal annual reporting requirements in the Federal Annual Certification Report of the United States Department of the Treasury.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
The High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area program, created by Congress with the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988, provides assistance to federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies operating in areas determined to be critical drug-trafficking regions of the United States. The purpose of the program is to reduce drug trafficking and production in the United States. Each High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area assesses the drug trafficking threat in its defined area, develops a strategy to address that threat, designs initiatives to implement the strategy, and proposes funding to carry out the initiatives. Each High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area is governed by its own regional Executive Board which has been granted the discretion to address drug trafficking threats. 

The South Florida High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area allocates its funding to member agencies in accordance with the area strategy and governing policies and procedures. The Miami-Dade Police Department, as a member agency, submits requests for consideration to the South Florida High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area to support Department activities consistent with the strategy and approved initiatives. The South Florida High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area reviews and approves these requests, and then allocates funding to the Miami-Dade Police Department.
